Whilst the TUC are advocating that all public sector unions to undertake strike action to add weight to their cause, negotiations between ASLEF, RMT and London Underground have reached an agreement to encourage staff to work all additional hours during the olympics. A one off payment of £500 will be paid to anyone willing to work, with various other payments being offered. In other words ‘please don’t strike’.
The whole worlds eyes will be on this country during next summer and it’s an ideal time for groups / unions to organise, and let their issues be known. Lets not sweep the country’s problems under the carpet, let them be paraded in front of the world’s media. I thought Bob Crowe would have made more out of this opportunity.
